Heavy diesel commercial motor vehicles, having a registered gross weight of between 4,500 kg and 6,350 kg, are commonly operated by Ontario farmers. The shortage of fixed-location test facilities within a reasonable driving distance of their farm, or a mobile test facility that is willing to drive to their farm, has made it onerous for farmers to obtain the required computer-based electronic emissions diagnostic test of heavy diesel commercial motor vehicles. OFA reiterated the need for the Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks to ensure that Ontario’s less populated agricultural and rural areas have reasonable access to emissions test facilities.
